Suspension

Just got our new Thor 31w. Has anyone made any mods to the suspension? Air bags, sway bars?? Just want to make ride as stable as I can and comfortable.

Talking

OMG , you came to the right place great great help. I have 34 Miramar added front sumo springs itís basically a big rubber bumper. And heavy duty sway bar big difference on the front end. All is easy to add. I am also adding a heavy duty rear end sway bar as per the collective of the Thor motor group . Do it and we will be less active and stress driving.

All the above and consider the shocks as well. Bilsteins are the best bang for the buck. Search the threads, there's lots of discussions. A recent, one the poster was putting dual shocks all around.

Welcome to the Forum, and Jamie is right: start by making sure that everything is pointing in the right direction first.

If the alignment isnít enough try the CHF before replacing the sway bars. Iíve been reading this forum for a long time now and I have yet to hear of someone who has replaced the sway bars after doing that simple change.
